Friday Skywatch - Korcula sunset.
We visited Korcula in 1968, when it was then in Yugoslavia, and loved it. We'd been married for just over a year and had been working apart in different areas of the country for the last three months of the year because Himself had started a new job in the west country, on the strength of which we had bought our first house. I was working out my notice as a lecturer in drawing and analytical studies at a small art school in the Midlands. We had very little money (and very little furniture in the house!) but felt that a celebratory holiday was due. We caught the train to Venice, my favourite city, and after a few days there got on a ferry that took us down the coast of Yugoslavia. We slept on deck and were able to hop on and off the boat as it stopped at the various ports. We stayed in several places, a memorable time on the small island of Drevnik, but it was Korcula that remained in our memories as being a lovely place. A return visit was long overdue. Last week, for our wedding anniversary, we returned. It did not disappoint. Just look at the sunset it gave us!
